      block: implement and enforce request peek/start/fetch · 9934c8c0
      Tejun Heo authored
      Till now block layer allowed two separate modes of request execution.
      A request is always acquired from the request queue via
      elv_next_request().  After that, drivers are free to either dequeue it
      or process it without dequeueing.  Dequeue allows elv_next_request()
      to return the next request so that multiple requests can be in flight.
      
      Executing requests without dequeueing has its merits mostly in
      allowing drivers for simpler devices which can't do sg to deal with
      segments only without considering request boundary.  However, the
      benefit this brings is dubious and declining while the cost of the API
      ambiguity is increasing.  Segment based drivers are usually for very
      old or limited devices and as converting to dequeueing model isn't
      difficult, it doesn't justify the API overhead it puts on block layer
      and its more modern users.
      
      Previous patches converted all block low level drivers to dequeueing
      model.  This patch completes the API transition by...
      
      * renaming elv_next_request() to blk_peek_request()
      
      * renaming blkdev_dequeue_request() to blk_start_request()
      
      * adding blk_fetch_request() which is combination of peek and start
      
      * disallowing completion of queued (not started) requests
      
      * applying new API to all LLDs
      
      Renamings are for consistency and to break out of tree code so that
      it's apparent that out of tree drivers need updating.
      
      [ Impact: block request issue API cleanup, no functional change ]

      ps3disk: dequeue in-flight request · 10e1e629
      Tejun Heo authored
      Other than in issue error paths, ps3disk always completely finishes
      fetched requests.  With full completion on error paths, it can be
      easily converted to dequeueing model.
      
      * After L1 r/w call failure, ps3disk_submit_request_sg() now fails the
        whole request.  Issue failure isn't likely to benefit from partial
        retry anyway and ps3disk uses full failure in completion error path
        too, so I don't think this amounts to any meaningful functionality
        loss.
      
      * flush completion is converted to _all for consistency.  It doesn't
        make any functional difference.

      block: convert to pos and nr_sectors accessors · 83096ebf
      Tejun Heo authored
      With recent cleanups, there is no place where low level driver
      directly manipulates request fields.  This means that the 'hard'
      request fields always equal the !hard fields.  Convert all
      rq->sectors, nr_sectors and current_nr_sectors references to
      accessors.
      
      While at it, drop superflous blk_rq_pos() < 0 test in swim.c.

      and rq->hard_cur_sectors respectively and convert direct references of

      block: replace end_request() with [__]blk_end_request_cur() · f06d9a2b
      Tejun Heo authored
      end_request() has been kept around for backward compatibility;
      however, it's about time for it to go away.
      
      * There aren't too many users left.
      
      * Its use of @updtodate is pretty confusing.
      
      * In some cases, newer code ends up using mixture of end_request() and
        [__]blk_end_request[_all](), which is way too confusing.
      
      So, add [__]blk_end_request_cur() and replace end_request() with it.
      Most conversions are straightforward.  Noteworthy ones are...
      
      * paride/pcd: next_request() updated to take 0/-errno instead of 1/0.
      
      * paride/pf: pf_end_request() and next_request() updated to take
        0/-errno instead of 1/0.
      
      * xd: xd_readwrite() updated to return 0/-errno instead of 1/0.
      
      * mtd/mtd_blkdevs: blktrans_discard_request() updated to return
        0/-errno instead of 1/0.  Unnecessary local variable res
        initialization removed from mtd_blktrans_thread().

      block: don't depend on consecutive minor space · f331c029
      Tejun Heo authored
      * Implement disk_devt() and part_devt() and use them to directly
        access devt instead of computing it from ->major and ->first_minor.
      
        Note that all references to ->major and ->first_minor outside of
        block layer is used to determine devt of the disk (the part0) and as
        ->major and ->first_minor will continue to represent devt for the
        disk, converting these users aren't strictly necessary.  However,
        convert them for consistency.
      
      * Implement disk_max_parts() to avoid directly deferencing
        genhd->minors.
      
      * Update bdget_disk() such that it doesn't assume consecutive minor
        space.
      
      * Move devt computation from register_disk() to add_disk() and make it
        the only one (all other usages use the initially determined value).
      
      These changes clean up the code and will help disk->part dereference
      fix and extended block device numbers.
